Cruise News Update.  What a great turn out for our first cruise of 2018! And the weather was fantastic too.

                                         Our next regularly scheduled cruise night is Tues. May 22, 2018.

                                         Start Time is 6:00 P.M. till dusk at Canadian Tire..

                                         Our Sponsors are Bruce and Marilyn.

After 22 years of hard work and dedication, Dave and Gail KInney are retiring from the administration of the Bancroft Cruisers.

I am sure that all the Cruisers will join me in wishing Dave and Gail good health and happy motoring. We are looking forward to seeing them in a well deserved relaxation mode at the upcoming cruises.

I would also like to introduce myself " Jim Woodward " as the guy trying to fill the Kinney's shoes. NOT EASY!... Thankfully they have agreed to point me in the right direction and help keep me on the straight and narrow. I will also be looking for volunteers to help with cruise activities and to offer constructive suggestions. I will be updating the web site as days go by so stay tuned.

Also - If we get rained out on a regular Tues. night cruise, we will meet the next Tues. Hopefully this will get us out more.

We will update you as the need arises.

Starting Tuesday May 8th, 2018, we invite you to join the Bancroft Cruisers for Cruise Night in the Bancroft Canadian Tire parking lot.  Bring your car, truck, motorcycle and share in an evening of tire-kicking and good natured banter focused on the vehicles we have, the ones we want and the ones that got away.  Tell a few lies! Laugh. Life is too short not to have a cool car. See "Events" tab for full schedule.

If you are in or around the Bancroft (Ontario) area and happen to be a dedicated gear head, car geek, or just have a passing interest in vintage and collector cars, then plan to attend the Bancroft Cruisers' Cruise Nights every second Tuesday evening at Canadian Tire (Mid-May to late September). 

In addition to regularly scheduled events, the Cruisers also hosts special events including the annual summer picnic at Millennium Park, the very popular greasy-finger corn roast, and the downtown Bancroft Show N' Shine when the main street of Bancroft becomes a massive parking lot with collector cars, vendors and live music.
